California Telemedicine and Urgent Care Frequently Asked Questions
Telemedicine is a doctor’s visit that does not require face-to-face interaction. It occurs 100 percent online. You can use your computer, tablet or smartphone to conduct a telemedicine appointment. This is a great option for people with busy schedules who do not have time to visit their doctor in person. It is also a great option for people in rural areas who do not have the same access to healthcare as people in large cities. Now, patients can meet with a medical professional from the comfort of their own home.
Of course, you cannot receive treatment for every medical issue during a telemedicine appointment. Some medical issues require in-person treatment at our urgent care center. However, you could consider taking advantage of urgent care telemedicine if you are experiencing the following health concerns.
- Certain respiratory conditions, including colds and seasonal allergies
- Ear, nose and throat ailments
- Certain skin rashes or infections
- Joint aches and pains
- Nausea or vomiting
You could also consider taking advantage of urgent care telemedicine under the following circumstances.
- Reviewing your lab or test results
- Following up on a previous medical visit
